Vulture reports these spoilers regarding Cross's character:
Cross will play Hank Hickey, the “bitterly estranged son” of Jonathan Banks’s previously announced character, Professor Hickey. Hank “joins the study group for, at the very least, the second most important game of Dungeons & Dragons ever.” Cross is expected to be on the Community set this week to film his part.
Arrested Development's creator Mitch Hurwitz will also make an appearance on Community this season.
Community returns on January 2. Are you excited to see Cross and a new D&D episode?
